Good afternoon !

I want to first of all apologize for disturbing you, and want to ask for your help, I know it's stupid and naive, but if you will respond and help, it would save my life!

The fact that I live in the European part of the continent, there is now the war is near my house more than once fell mines, and in the city of armed men. I attempted to move to a quiet part of the country, but encountered only incomprehension and contempt from both the citizens and the authorities, and soon after the persecutions I had to return to the fighting zone.
I also tried to give refugees in neighboring countries, on the border when I asked for asylum at the border guards, they threatened to pull the dogs on me, took away the phone and using physical force drove me back, while morally demeaning me and swearing. When I returned home in a war zone, I wrote about after their embassy, ​​but the answer did not come.

I survived working at the local stock, I receive over 260 hours = $ 70, it's above-average earnings in our town. The products are like the average American town. I really want to try to go to America and stop to survive, to live a normal life, without the fear that the mine will arrive at any time in the house, or shot in the street, to start a new life, work, start a family .... LIVE.

Unfortunately I was not even able to get a visa because she is very dear to me, and for the reason that I live in a war zone is very large chance that I will refuse it.
I do not know what to do, do not want to live, I was desperate, desperate hope and I am writing to you!

Maybe you can help me, or you know of someone who can help.
I'll take any help, be it advice, moral support, help in assimilation (if I have all the same will come to the US), or a job offer, perhaps a temporary place of residence, or you can help or know how I get away from the war in America, you might want to help me money that I could make a visa and leave for the United States. I will accept any help in any form or manifestation, as well as ideas and suggestions!

I write anonymously, because I fear for my life and health. There were cases when the one who wrote bad about the situation in the city is located, even if he wrote anonymously. So recently we found and captured anonymously guy who wrote about the situation in the city.
When I'm in the United States in security I can tell you more about themselves, as well as if someone is interested, I can give an interview on arrival.

About me :
Age 26 years, male, tall, European, do not smoke, do not drink alcohol, I do not have bad habits and addictions.
Education:
Landscape designer / Gardening / gardener
What I can: Landscape design, landscaping, gardening, gathering and production of furniture, manufacture of cider and wine, painting, sewing, organizing festivals and events, craft, construction, advanced PC user, assisted in the veterinary clinic to treat animals. It is easy to train and adapt. Ask for and offer other jobs, and I say I can or not.

If you just want to talk, I'll be very happy!

Thank you for your attention and for reading to the end!

My name is FACU González, I'm 13 years old, and I'm writing about the following. First I will tell you my story, then I want you to ask yourself the following. I have 4 brothers, my parents are divorced, and my mom is out of work, because she is having health problems, she hurts me like my mom goes asking for help, , Mom can not work because she has spine problems like me, and now she was sent an MRI of the spine because it does not improve with physiotherapy and remedies and I do not let her work with physiotherapy and we are also With psychologists for depreciation and panic attacks for all these problems according to the doctor But she has with the assignment and what my dad is going through x month, I have no colors, scientific calculator I needed this year I could not buy, and I was difficult everything The year in the matter, my sister Melissa last night I'm crying because I did not complete the math writing x did not have the geometry game, because Mom did not have the money to buy it, we cut the water for 5 days, 3 years ago they threw us out Of the house of the family of my father only when Clothes, (the long history) the ministry of the house helped us to rent a house and the neighbors ours were giving their furniture that no services, almost nothing has arrangement, My sister's bed we made of pallet, my sister's backpack is all broken, the curtain of our rooms in an old old woman, the kitchen is full of holes the oven almost none walks either, fans are not there, and the Uses can not renew, because the government thinks that with what has Mama per month we can keep the whole month x that amount, there are times we do not eat and we do not eat dinner !! How can we turn our backs on ????, we do not bring snack to the school as it is possible to create the government that My mother can keep 5 children (food, clothes, snacks, utensils, water, electricity, gas, toilet paper Paste dental shampoo and everything in the household with 6 people? It is not MY MAMA WHO ARE HELPING, IT IS MY BROTHER AND MY BROTHERS !!!, I really do not understand.I had to send mails and insist on the government to the parliament to That they help us.I would like them to help us and be heartfelt, if necessary to have to talk to my mom.All we have been given back ong, charitable services, government, from so much that jodi gave a mom In addition to its allocation 2300 thousand pesos !! More !! X the mides !!, really thanks that serves, my mom no longer asks for more help, and in total I already send worldwide and here in Uruguay more than 1000 hotmail. Because there is no press? Because they do not become famous? Why is there nothing in return, if there is no tv and internet magazines ?? I do not know what else to do! The overflowing black well, and the one that came to help and give us a helping hand without asking for a change and to have a hand was Mr. Carlos Castrillo of the social action of the Intendance !! That gentleman is the only one with a good heart. Then a MONTEVIDEO Beneficence sent us clothes, blankets, pillows, shoes, sheets and mattresses, but the 600email, which until today xq every day are adding up, only those two people approached with heart. I ask you from the heart to help me please my family and me, do not give us back as they all did .. I expect your answer, there is no furniture where to put clothes, where to eat we never eat together sit, we are not asking for a game, Cell phones, we ask for things that we need and unfortunately life once took us out (long story) we want to sit together to eat, we want to be able to watch the whole television not half, we want to have complete useful and healthy, that our beds are not remedied , Wardrobe where to put clothes, and there is no reason why mom can not work, help !!! thank you very much! Do not give us your back! 59896200204 diana romero she is my mom uruguay colony of the sacramento .. I know we are far ... but love help has no borders ... and my here in my country nobody helps us .. Nor the world ... you with just an imail. ..Here to Uruguay can if they want or from there. ..please help!! Do you have a heart of stone ?? Or it is because these companies, their children have everything, and this year they will have everything, or not to move a finger or answer, or try to help. Do not take it to heart, but most wish me luck, and tell me we're away, and the mail ?? Private mail, to help there is no excuse, is that one simply does not want. Help us in whatever it is .... if all that we have is already patched or does not serve, we never arrive at the end of the month to eat.
Because nobody wants to help and makes a fool and they do not even respond? Because I can not give you any change? Because the company policy does not allow it? ? I already know all that story .. when they do not care to help, when they have auto luxuries, companies, and their children does not lack anything, sorry but I get angry, so far everyone has given me back

Read the special feature from Hilary Pennington, Mark Freeman, and Barbara Ibrahim on how private #philanthropy  has a crucial role to play in successful transitions while also an obligation to do better.
Following the January 2011 revolt in Tunisia against the regime of President Ben Ali, the country's transition leaders adopted an open-door approach to foreign aid. An avalanche of mostly uncoordinated aid followed. Donors – private and bilateral – arrived asking questions like, ...
